St Joseph Rouge 'Offerus' Jl Chave Selection 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chave dynasty needs no introduction. Since 1483, when England was enduring<br/>the War of the Roses, the Chaves have been been producing white and red<br/>Hermitage of the highest quality, their quality in point of fact almost<br/>embarrassingly better than that of all of the other producers on the famous<br/>hillside. The latest scion is Jean Louis, erudite and affable by turn, his<br/>natural ability enhanced by an international education, in particular at the<br/>University of California Davis. The only problem with Jean-Louis'<br/>Hermitage vineyard is that it only covers 15 hectares, huge, it has to be said,<br/>in terms of Hermitage itself, but tiny in the grand scheme of things.

Great stuff. A little more angular than the '05's that are also drinking perfectly right now. Tasted in a vertical from '01 to '08.
